Salt Bank debuts – new Romanian digital bank built in under 12 months

Salt Bank has launched less than one year after the project kicked off.

Salt Bank is the first neobank using Engine by Starling’s core banking system outside the vendor’s parent company, Starling Bank. It was implemented in partnership between GFT, Salt Bank and Engine by Starling. This continues a transformative trend GFT sees in financial services and beyond.

GFT was engaged to provide overall design and integration services, relying on its deep expertise. The company specialises in launching banks on next-generation technologies. GFT developed onboarding capabilities as well as the technology model for Salt Bank. This will allow Salt to manage its ecosystem of services providers as its success grows.

“The launch of Salt Bank showcases our global leadership in digital banking on modern platforms. This is the latest of many modern banking platforms we have launched worldwide in the last two years,” said Carlton Hopper, Engine by Starling Executive Sponsor and UK Managing Director at GFT.

“We delivered an integrated, tailored, robust and secure banking platform for Salt. And as the first to deploy Engine’s flexible platform, the programme sets a new standard. It incorporates all the innovation from Starling, enhancing efficiency in the industry.”

“Our collaboration with GFT has set a new benchmark for digital banking,” added Gabriela Nistor, CEO of Salt Bank. “Salt’s rapid onboarding and advanced features reflect our commitment to providing seamless, cutting-edge financial services to our customers. GFT’s dedicated team of specialists have excelled in delivering our new bank within a very challenging timeframe.”

Fully automated customer onboarding and advanced features

One of Salt’s early achievements is its fully automated and secure customer onboarding process, which takes just a few minutes.

Salt has also offered advanced features, such as multi-currency accounts and cards from the outset.

The bank onboarded over 100,000 customers within the first two weeks of the launch. Within a month it exceeded 200,000. Salt Bank is on track to reach its target of 1 million customers with the first three years of operation.

“Salt Bank debuts – new Romanian digital bank built in under 12 months” was originally created and published by Retail Banker International, a GlobalData owned brand.

                  The world’s preeminent Private Banks and Wealth Managers are demonstrating a committed drive in innovation, advisory, new products and services to meet the sophisticated needs of their clients.

                  COVID-19
                  Amid economic activity revival on the back of the Covid-19 vaccine program, organisations moving from business continuity plans to stable working environments, together with the slightest improvement in unemployment numbers, forced the world to adjust to new realities. Coming to terms with the “new normal”, global investors are now on the look-out for attractive and stable investment opportunities.

                  Needs of Private Wealth customers and families worldwide have drastically changed due to the pandemic and banks have had to accelerate efforts to deploy a multi-channel service strategy and safeguard clients’ businesses and wealth against negative impacts of economic uncertainly.

                  The Global Private Banking Innovation Awards will recognise the world’s best private banks, wealth managers and asset managers that are championing innovation across advisory, service, products, customer experience and more.
